The purpose of physiotherapy is to reduce pain and allow you to
continue daily activities. Physiotherapy can reduce pain in the soft tissues
(such as the muscles, ligaments, and tendons), improve function, and build
muscle strength. A
physiotherapist provides these treatments and will
also provide education, instruction, and support for recovery.
